    Keelin posted reply number 102 for Wave Clouds holding her breath. I hope you already breathed in before the new Volume was started Keelin! I must suppose so, but your last one was indeed breathtaking (any one can check).

    Before the post by Keelin George posted some so called KH wannabies on the former Wave Clouds thread. Well, for me the last two are really KH George. I happened to have the opportunity recently to see a lot of nice weather cumuli passing by and a lot of them showed what you would name KH wannabies. From begin to end I watched them develop and disappear in cloudy chaos, one more characteristic then the other, but nevertheless KH instability on cumuli. For me their features are too specific – with this characteristic crescent – to describe them as KH Wannabies. Of course you may disagree, but for a start of this volume here is another one of the same kind with even some color.

What story would it tell, I wonder? And Putting the Waves back in motion is just what we need after a quiet rest. Love the cresting highlights!

    I found the somewhat foamy image below tucked away in archives today. As I recall, it was the lennies in the far distance that caught my eye. It had been ages since I’d seen any lenticularis, and spotting just a couple brought a big grin. The layering of clouds in the foreground reminds me of coastal fog, which also makes me smile — especially since I don’t live nearly near enough to the sea.

    Fluctus? Not sure about it. Could be undulatus seen from a particular angle? What do others think?

    Hans Stocker
    Participant

    George, to me it certainly was fluctus but now seems to be already over the top (so to say). I am also not certain whether one can call it fluctus in this phase of the flow. In fact fluctus is caused by an instability and at a certain point of the process it shows the typical crests of a Kelvin- Helmholtz formation now classified as fluctus. I suppose it is at that point it is classified as fluctus. Your picture just shows something of it before it all dissipates in cloudy chaos (quote from the Cloud a Day service).

    Whatever the proper classification may be, George, there’s something fun in the form taken by the clouds you’ve captured there.

    And Hans, Long After The Sea Stayed Restless would be the perfect title for a mystery novel with that image on the cover. Did something (or someone!) go overboard? Perhaps only those with a bird’s eye view could say.

    There is great beauty in the calmness you’ve captured in your image, Hans. It’s almost as if undulatus is being reflected in nearly still water that ripples gently in the opposite direction. And yet, we know it all took place in the sky above.

    Quite a contrast to what the image below suggests. Another plunge into the deep by who, what, when, where?
